In short we had a great time on the 40 minute little boat cruise of the canal area. The boat captain told us many things that I did not know, including that George Washington was the person who suggested that Richmond build a canal in the city. And they listened to him. We also learned that Richmond was known for its import of tea and we learned a lot about the tobacco export and the tobacco warehouses.
It was such a beautiful day, warm but not hot.
We really enjoyed ourselves.
So an assignment to you -- go take a tour of your city. You may be surprised at what you learn.
